If you find yourself struggling to come to an agreement regarding shared custody, mediation may be able to help.

Have a gifted child? Get more in child support

Providing for children can be a challenging task. It is one thing to meet basic needs; it is a whole other ball game to provide the funds necessary to support extras, such as special talents.

However, it may be possible for custodial parents to request more financial support in order to help pay for approved extras.

Doing so will, understandably, lead to a custody dispute -- one that parents in Massachusetts may have to go to court to resolve.
